Will this book be enough to construct a complete Dragon repertoire from (excluding anti-scilians of course)?


LostTactic buy Dearing's book and then Vigorito's. That will be a good start.

Really? Roll Eyes
Wow, I did not know chess is such a simple game...

Moderator's note: I let it go, because it's kind of funny, but please stick to the subject, which is Vigorito's book.
Of course everybody should feel free to open a thread about options for White that are at least as theoretically challenging as the Yugoslav.


I don't think he is trying to change the subject. He is just mentioning that game as an example of a non challenging variation. I have played the dragon through out my life, and I can say that it takes really deep study to be able to understand the different motifs of the position. The complexity is so big sometimes, that you might find answers where you never thought.
The systems that start with 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 0-0 8.Qd2 Nc6 and so on.. are supposed to be the most aggressive ones. Especially, when white plays 9.Bc4, and you have to figure out what kind of system you will adopt against that. I read a little bit of Vigorito's book  excerpt, and I think that he is creating a text book for modern systems that nobody wrote about. I feel happy because personally I don't even have time to gather games and do a thorough study of those systems. But, Vigorito's book will be a guide if not an updated book showing examples of those modern positions debated. I believe this book is a MUST for any Dragon Player.

After reading the excerpts, I would say that Vigorito did a very good job in selecting the most relevant variations and recent games, which have made the dragon variation progress in the past 5-10 years.
The book is a very welcome addition to Dearing's book and Khalifman's book (Anand 11). Clearly Vigorito manages to explain the key ideas to the reader very understandably. He doesn't get lost in too long variations and leaves some space for further investigations (e.g. with your favourite engine).

Without any doubt, this book is a must-buy for any serious dragon advocate.

No; Vigorito only considers the position after 6.Be3 Bg7 7.f3 Nc6 8.Qd2 0-0. Which is fair enough given that the alternatives are not theoretically challenging. White can even end up worse if he avoids the Yugoslav Attack and doesn't play accurately, as Nepomniachtchi-Nakamura, Tal Memorial 2011 poignantly demonstrated.

Really looking forward to another (hopefully) great book from you. I bought your works on the King's Indian and the Semi-Slav and they're both excellent value for money!

Sounds like Everyman Chess's version of Quality Chess's 'Cutting Edge' series.  Wink
